This historic building sits proudly on the shore of Grand Manan in North Head. Make it your first stop in your island getaway to Grand Manan and is only a 2 minute walk down from the ferry terminal. Aside from the beautiful 1938 architecture, the building hosts an eclectic mix of small businesses. Tourist information can be found in the building with the standard fare of brochures, but it also hosts a community products based store called 'The Exchange' showcasing the community of Grand Manan's talents.

The old post office is a cool old building and worth a stop in. Excellent coffee and ice cream, some island art items with a lot of touristy stuff for sale as well. Great location right off the ferry in North Head.
